There has been some discussion recently about the way medals are counted at the Olympics. Do we only count gold or total medals?
Well, I have the best way and it shows the US is far above anyone else. And, thanks to the NBC site, I have the data.
The real measure should be how many individuals walk away from the Olympics with a medal. Not how many events were won. we should applaud the people who got a medal after all that hard work.
We just do so much better in the team sports. So let’s count all of the medals, not just enumerate the events.
